Duquesne Light New Default Service Rates Up 17%

Variable Electric Rate

Duquesne Light filed with the Pennsylvania PUC new default service supply rates for the period beginning December 1, 2015.

The default service supply rate reflects generation supply only; unlike the official Prices to Compare which also reflect transmission and the state GRT adjustment. 

The Small C&I <25 kW (Rate Schedules GS/GM and GMH and Rate Schedule UMS) supply charge will be 6.0133¢/kWh for the period December 1, 2015 to May 31, 2016, versus the current 6.2355¢/kWh.

The Medium C&I 25-300 kW (Rate Schedules GS/GM and GMH and Rate Schedule UMS) supply charge will be 6.6641¢/kWh for the period December 1, 2015 to February 29, 2016, versus the current 5.6764¢/kWh.
